Vanilla Forest: Looking for a new and exciting vanilla fragrance? Try our duplication of the popular “Vanilla Bean” by Henry Bendel. It’s a musky vanilla laced with Lemon Leaf, Almond Flower and Vanilla Blossom with base notes of Patchouli and sandalwood. This fragrance does fantastic in cold process soap though you may find it goes a tan to brown.

Vanilla Forest is lovely OOB. There was something about it though that kept reminding me of another fragrance. One day, it hit me. All those notes together reminded me of B&BW Moonlight Path and the only thing missing was a bit of lavender. Once I combined the two, it was spot on for Moonlight Path. I call my collection Moonlight Forest and it's a favorite of almost all my customers. They agree that it's a dead ringer for Moonlight Path. Thanks Bramble Berry!
Would not buy this again. It's lovely OOB, but the creamy vanilla notes vanish in CP and it becomes more after-shave like. It does stick well - no acceleration or discoloration.
Could be just me but I am disappointed in this FO. I love BB products but this is not one of them. Very faint scent, not a favorite.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cyndi! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this fragrance. We love our Vanilla Forest Fragrance Oil and its delightful blend of musky vanilla, blossoms and earthy base notes. If you're looking for other vanilla blends you may like Vanilla Rosewood Fragrance Oil, Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil, or Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil.
I really like this scent, but I do feel the way others feel about it: it's not a "true" vanilla, but it's not a saccharinely sweet vanilla either. It definitely smells like a "sexy vanilla" the way others have described it, but not something I'm comfortable with using when desiring a touch of vanilla in a soap to complement a sweet or floral scent. I do really enjoy the scent though, it's great in CP & MP, but would also make a wonderful perfume. Pair it with amber & you've got yourself some sensual seduction soap. Wouldn't recommend it with milk & honey fragrance, but it still smells lovely, just not what I'm going for. I'll be buying some other vanilla fragrance from BB though. The name is on point: it definitely smells like a vanilla forest, a combination of earthy forest & sweet, but not too sweet vanilla.
I used the Vanilla Forrest in one of my layers, tilted the mold up on side. Then added a layer with the Oatmeal Stout. I ended up with 2 diagonal sections one of each scent. The vanilla was the creamy tan color and the Oatmeal Stout was the darker beige. It looked like the Black & Tan beer soaps. It was not only beautiful but the scent combo was amazing! This is a great gift for the men and with Father's day coming, I'll be making more! I was so happy with this combination I hope others give it a try! : >
